Control Arms & Bolts

I've torn apart the front suspension on my '75 Buick Apollo, removing the springs and control arms, but I've hit a problem.
I had a friend helping me, and he misplaced most of my original bolts so I do not have any to refer back to in order to get replacements. Does anyone here know the dimensions of the bolts required for the upper and lower control arms on a '70-77 Apollo/Skylark/Nova/Omega/Ventura or even a Firebird or Camaro?

Any info would be great, I can find pictures of kits online, but no info on dimensions at all, not even from my '75 Service Manual.

Thanks in advance.

Your best bet is to just measure the holes that the bolts fit thru. Then go get grade #8 bolts that will fit and give you enough room for a locking nut and washer

Yeah, I decided to go that route for now, picked up an assortment and whatever I have left over I will put to use elsewhere on the car.

Thanks for the reply, much appreciated
